Abstract:

In the early 80s, largely due to Chomsky's Lectures on Government and
Binding and ensuing research, a kind of encompassing theory of empty
elements had emerged. This theory was largely concerned with silent
subjects, silent pronominals, and various kinds of traces of movement.
Since then, however, the picture has become more blurred. More types of
empty elements were proposed, ellipsis phenomena began to receive some
attention, and interface issues arose: are silent elements silent due to
deletion (or failure to be spelled out) at the phonetic interface or are
they independently existing items in the lexicon that simply fail to have a
phonetic form? Furthermore, silent elements are also ubiquitous in
phonology and similar questions arise: can syllables have empty nuclei, can
segments fail to be pronounced when they are not properly attached to a
slot in a (supra-) segmental structure? "Sounds of Silence" is an attempt
to bring together a number of original contributions that all address such
questions. And while a new encompassing theory is not yet in sight, this
book helps pave the way. This book offers a study of "empty elements" in
language use. The original contributions are from an international list of
authors.
